    [h=PROS]5[/h]
    • tested Last.fm radio and a YouTube video and got audio from both headphones and speakers
    • Noticed the Firmware version shows up in the About Chrome OS > More info
    • Pandora and Groveshark work perfectly. Browsing overall is still great, which include YouTube vids.
    • VPN support - Show Private networks in the Network menu to enable conencting to a VPN. [about: flags]


    • PREVIOUS POSITIVES
    • The image viewer it both back, and better looking!! Hit Ctrl+O
    • drop-down type extensions (such as Google Voice, Handy Google Shortcuts, Voice Search, etc.) open normally again. Previously, they would open far to the left of the screen, with messed up formatting. It looks like it's back to normal now.
    • 24 Hour clock available!
    • Gadget windows show as orange until selected whenever new activity takes places in them.
    • Sync works flawlessly and instantly
    • Trackpad is nearly flawless, a huge boost from the last build.
    • Overall improvement to OS responsiveness (smooth, quick transitions)
    • New user-friendly file manager
      : Receiving a new IM (in the Google Talk app) on an already open panel pokes up and turns orange to get your attention!
    • "Removable device" popup doesn't appear on every resume anymore
    • Stable channel launched! - Wrench > About Chrome OS > More Info > Channel > Stable
    • Doesn't go into sleepmode anymore (while on battery) if Pandora is playing
    • Experimental new tab page looks a lot better (from last update) Multiple profiles flag available




    [h=Cons. / Aw, Snap! / He's Dead, Jim!]5[/h]

    • No longer can read sd or usb for music, even in guest mode.
    • Grooveshark/playback/resume issue persists. This issue applies to any audio (YouTube, Pandora)




    [h=MISC]5[/h]



    [h=UNCONFIRMED - If anyone can confirm please reply]5[/h]




      [h=Issues from previous OS Release]5[/h]
      I'll pull issues off this list once confirmed Fixed or Not Fixed
      • The screen seems to periodically dim and brighten at will, seems like a new bug that has been introduced.
      • file manager only works in Guest login
      • Grooveshark/playback/resume issue persists
      • New default theme colors makes reading the time difficult (fix is on the way)


      • MISC
      • update killed my external sound- speakers or headset.

      I'm not able to use my usb flash drive... There is no advanced file transfer or whatever it's called in the about:flags menu.

      Was VPN support in the last release? Didn't have a chance to explore.

      VPN allows you to connect to and use another network such as home or work securely over unsecured or public networks.
      All the traffic from your Cr-48 would be routed over the VPN through your home (PC) or work network.
      Comes in handy so "bad people" or hackers cant use sniffers such as Wireshark or man in the middle attacks like Firesheep to steal your unencrypted login/password or web sessions.

      Your home PC using XP/Vista or Win7 can be used to setup a VPN gateway but your router has to support it too. Inbound ports need to be opened up to allow the connection. If you don't have a static IP address at home Dyndns works pretty good to give your dynamic address a name.

      If I get a chance to give this a try I'll throw together a "How To" unless someone beats me to it.

      Does video playback work, or is it the same deal as music?
